Hello, I am new to mql4 codes programming, i have tried this several times
but couldn't get it right at all.
Please, can somebody help me generate mql4 codes for my trading system to
become an automated trading EA?
The idea behind the trading system is this:

- The system will open 3 pairs of buy-stop and sell-stop pending orders at

exactly 9:00 am GMT (London Time)

- Buy-stop order's open price will be 20pips above the highest price from the

hour of 00:00 am - 8:00 am GMT (London Time).

- Sell-stop order's open price will be 20pips below the lowest price from the

hour of 00:00 am - 8:00 am GMT (London Time).

- Stop loss is 23pips (-/+ spread) for all orders.

- Take profit for the first pair of order is 23pips (-/+ spread)

" " " " second " " " " 53pips ( -/+ spread )
" " " " third " " " " 103pips( -/+ spread )

- Trailing stop is 25pips for both second and third pair of orders only.

- All pending orders to expire at exactly 12:50pm GMT (London Time).

- Lot for the first order is 1.0 (Mini Acct.)

" " " second and third orders is 0.20 (Mini Acct.)
Note: Lots can be adjusted according to the account size, type and broker.

- Leverage is 100:1 (Can be adjusted)

- Can work for gbpusd, gbpjpy, gbpchf, eurgbp or eurjpy on hourly chart.

- This process to be carried out every Monday to Friday continuously.


Thanks- Opengates.

First step:

You need to look at the documentation and understand how EAs work with regard to incoming ticks - specifically the usage of the init() and start() functions.


Second step:

Take one of the sample EAs and annotate each line of code with exactly what it is doing - by referring to the documentation.


By the way:

Can't see anywhere in your code where you've made any attempt to open trading at 0900.

That's just the first of many observations (averaging more than one per line of code), which, until you start to get your head around things a bit more, are not worth stating.

Thanks CB,

For finding time to attend to me. I am trying my hands on another codes, It belongs to someone else and i am modifying it because it is similar in operations to my trading system. Can you please modify it for me to do a complete work as defined by my trading system?

Thanks once again. I will be expecting, God bless.

Cloud Breaker,

There is one more thing i will like to know about the EAs, do they work if the computer is not turned on at all?

Thanks,

Opengates.

Opengates.

The EA runs on your own computer, so turning it on will help enormously.

When the EA places orders successfully, those orders are stored in your broker/bank computer system until you or your EA closes/deletes them.

So it really depends upon your trading strategy whether or not your computer needs to remain turned on for long periods.

For example:

- If your strategy is to analyse candles all day and/or manage its own stop loss (to stop your broker hunting you) then the computer needs to be on and the EA running

- If your strategy just makes a decision once a day based on daily movement and you're happy to trust your broker to action your stops, then you can turn your computer off, as long as you ensure that on restart, your EA has access to any data it needs to recover its context.


I'm going to make a point of not writing your code for you. This is a programming forum, not an EA market.

You've got a strategy, which is 1 strategy more than a lot of folks on here who want EAs written.

So. Read the docs, starting with the basics. Annotate the sample EAs so you know how they work. Then start writing your OWN code.

Once you do that, you will find that I, and others, will suddenly be a lot more forthcoming with our respect and help.
